Our coverage of the Occupy Wall Street movement has concluded. For all intents and purposes, the movement ended on Nov. 15, 2011, when New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg used riot police to clear Zuccotti Park. Mayors in other U.S. cities used the same approach in running out protesters, including the action on Nov. 30 when 300 people were arrested while police shut down the Occupy Los Angeles protest.
The bottom line is that the rich and powerful have won. The protests did little to change America. In Egypt, protesters were able to completely overthrow their government in 18 days. In the U.S., after two months of marches and speeches, protesters couldn't even shut down the New York Stock Exchange.
The protest is over. The American people have lost.
